Testing multiflavored ULDM models with SPARC

  title={Testing multiflavored ULDM models with SPARC},
  author={Lauren Street and Nickolay Y. Gnedin and L. C. Rohana Wijewardhana},
We perform maximum likelihood estimates (MLEs) for single and double flavor ultralight dark matter (ULDM) models using the Spitzer Photometry and Accurate Rotation Curves (SPARC) database. These estimates are compared to MLEs for several commonly used cold dark matter (CDM) models. By comparing various CDM models we find, in agreement with previous studies, that the Burkert and Einasto models tend to perform better than other commonly used CDM models. We focus on comparisons between the Einasto…

Small-scale structure in vector dark matter
. We investigate the differences in the small-scale structure of vector dark matter (VDM) and scalar dark matter (SDM) using 3+1 dimensional simulations of single/multicomponent Schr¨odinger-Poisson


The Structure of Dark Matter Halos in Dwarf Galaxies
Recent observations indicate that dark matter halos have flat central density profiles. Cosmological simulations with nonbaryonic dark matter, however, predict self-similar halos with central density
A mass-dependent density profile for dark matter haloes including the influence of galaxy formation
ABSTRACT We introduce a mass dependent density profile to describe the distribution of dark matterwithin galaxies, which takes into account the stellar-to-halo mass dependence of the responseof dark
Galaxy Rotation Curves Disfavor Traditional and Self-interacting Dark Matter Halos, Preferring a Disk Component or Einasto Function
We use the galaxy rotation curves in the SPARC database to compare nine different dark matter (DM) and modified gravity models on an equal footing, paying special attention to the stellar
Galactic rotation curves versus ultralight dark matter: Implications of the soliton-host halo relation
Bosonic ultra-light dark matter (ULDM) would form cored density distributions at the center of galaxies. These cores, seen in numerical simulations, admit analytic description as the lowest energy
Testing feedback-modified dark matter haloes with galaxy rotation curves: estimation of halo parameters and consistency with ΛCDM scaling relations
Cosmological $N$-body simulations predict dark matter (DM) haloes with steep central cusps (e.g. NFW, Navarro et al. 1996). This contradicts observations of gas kinematics in low-mass galaxies that
Radial Acceleration Relation in Rotationally Supported Galaxies.
A correlation between the radial acceleration traced by rotation curves and that predicted by the observed distribution of baryons is reported, tantamount to a natural law for rotating galaxies.
SPARC: Mass Models for 175 Disk Galaxies with Spitzer Photometry and Accurate Rotation Curves
We introduce SPARC (Spitzer Photometry & Accurate Rotation Curves): a sample of 175 nearby galaxies with new surface photometry at 3.6 um and high-quality rotation curves from previous HI/Halpha
The small scatter of the baryonic Tully-Fisher relation
In a LCDM cosmology, the baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTFR) is expected to show significant intrinsic scatter resulting from the mass-concentration relation of dark matter halos and the
